NYIGF: Take a Number

One of the other big themes I noticed while I was touring the New York International Gift Fair were numbers.  They were printed on everything from pillows to storage boxes.  I thought they looked really fresh and fun.  Another popular item I noticed that you can see in some of these examples are wire baskets and storage items in every possible size and shape.  Enjoy!
These boxes and the pillows above are from Vagabond Vintage, one of my favorite booths.  You can find their items available at Mothology
Numbered pillows from Go Home.
Numbered boxes at BoBo Intriguing Objects.
Numbered box, vintage German walking sticks and Swiss Army bag at Blue Ocean Traders.
Numbered boxes at Design Legacy.

    Hi Heather,
    really enjoying your NYIGF reports!
    …seems to me that you are really honing in on the antique-y look, or is that a big trend there this time around?

    all of the numbered items look so vintage! I like those boxes by design legacy. someday I want to attend the nyigf– I bet it was amazing.

    i love this trend. it would be great in a play room too, sophisticated but a classic element to kid’s designs as well.

    Your reports from NYIGF are a fun way to hone in on details of a place that can be totally overwhelming – you should be a magazine editor!
